Best of Spiral Musings: Favorite Posts

Best of the Best: My All-Time Favorites

According to the Oxford Dictionaries (British and American),  “best” means “Of the most excellent, effective, or desirable type or quality” as well as “Most enjoyable” and “Most appropriate, advantageous, or well advised.”

“Best” is a relative, often subjective term. I’m the first to admit that. According to Helen Keller, “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart,”  while Winston Churchill is quoted as saying, “My tastes are simple: I am easily satisfied with the best.”

In that spirit, I feel strongly that the following blog posts are “the best”: personal favorites that have garnered the most comments on this website and on Facebook. Many of these selections have even been retweeted on Twitter, much to my surprise and delight. Friends and acquaintances, in person and online, have commented on many of these selections, saying that the posts have made a difference in their lives and have given these readers something to think about and even to act upon. I hope you find these favorites an inspiration in your spiritual life.   Enjoy and Blessed Be!
